Sanjay Leela Bhansali's name is resonant with grandeur, larger-than-life filmmaking, lavish sets, elaborate song-and-dance sequences and drama. As the filmmaker turns 53, we look back at his directorial journey from 'Khamoshi' to 'Bajirao Mastani'
'Bajirao Mastani' (2015)
Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his characteristic style narrates his version of the story of 'Bajirao Mastani' in a Mughal-e-azamesque scale of grandiosity, replete with breathtakingly beautiful sets, elaborate and well thought of costumes and accessories and dreamy cinematography. Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra's performances lift the magnum opus and make sure the film secures awards, critics' appreciation and audience applause alike. Pic/Santa Banta
